Clare Haward paints from life, often “en plain air”. Years of living and working in Europe and the Middle East has developed a sophisticated understanding of the complexities of tone, light, colour. An air of mystery permeates landscapes absent of any human presence, and still life compositions of everyday studio items seem somehow imbued with ritualistic significance.
Haward graduated from Camberwell College of Art with a diploma in 1996 and has since gone on to exhibit across London as both part of art prizes such as the Threadneedle Art Prize 2012 and Lynn Painter Stainer Prize 2016, as well as other group shows, most recently at the Mall Galleries 2016. Clare has also exhibited in Cyprus (2009) and Israel (Malcha Gallery, Jerusalem, 2010; Hatahana Gallery, Tel Aviv, 2012).
